Richmond Free Press recognizes Sheri Shannon

The Richmond Free Press has named Southside ReLeaf’s Sheri Shannon as their Personality of the week:

“Five years ago, Amy and I participated in the Richmond 300 master-planning process. Part of that process was to review the Insights Report, a summary of data and trends that inform our decisions to help shape the future growth of the city. However, the report revealed glaring social inequities across Richmond around housing and homeownership, economic security, educational attainment and life expectancy gaps.

As we went through the report, we continued to see how the Southside fell behind in every category,” she said. “So, we started Southside ReLeaf in July 2019 to address these social inequities in South Richmond – to amplify the existing work of our neighbors and bring greater attention to these issues so decision makers would prioritize investments in these communities,” Ms. Shannon said.
